Middlesex is the first and only hospital in Connecticut—and one of only 20 hospitals in the entire country—to earn the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s coveted Magnet® Recognition for nursing excellence five times in a row.
The Magnet Recognition Program® is the best way for patients to identify hospitals with a commitment to high quality care and innovation. In fact, the Wall Street Journal has urged readers to "find a 'Magnet' hospital in your area," and said that “Magnet hospitals do make a difference" in the quality of care patients receive.
And Magnet Recognition goes far beyond nursing. It shows our entire hospital’s commitment customer satisfaction, patient safety and state-of-the-art technology—all to ensure the best outcomes.
In their roles as caregivers, our nurses make special connections with patients and their families every moment of every day. They are inextricably linked to their profession of healing and compassion and imbued with an overwhelming drive to improve the lives of those for whom they care. As a result, their lives change as well — in powerful ways.
